After a spell that Alexandra’s cousin casts goes awry, Canoir saves her from the destruction it causes.  Both are startled by their attraction, but become aware they are mates. 

Accursed is the fourth book in The Hellfire Club series and is about Canoir and his curse, though he is both a wolf and vampire, he becomes a mindless beast once a month and runs amuck.  This story touches a little on The Hellfire Club, but focuses more on what is going on with Mishpokov’s grab for power as well as what is going on between Alexandra and Canoir.

Alexandra and Canoir have a lot of chemistry. Quite a few obstacles are thrown at the couple, including a ritual that includes testing Canoir’s ability to please Alexandra publically. As some of Canoir’s history unfolds, it is apparent this is also a very good twist on the Beauty and the Beast theme

Several interesting twists are thrown in that could lead to war. Part of the group involved are members of the king’s family. The more I learned about Mishpokov, the more I disliked him, especially the way he treated his people.  His son is even worse than he was.

There were some humorous moments, especially with Alexandra’s familiar. The author threw in an unexpected twist by closing the various realms off from the others until certain things come to pass.  This, of course, opens up all sorts of possibilities in the future. 

The Hellfire Club series should be read in order to really get a good grasp of the various issues between the paranormal races, though each can be read alone.  I can’t wait to see what happens next.
